Short Lived

Short Lived is a 4 piece emo band hailing from PHX, AZ. The band was originally started by Forest Walldorf formerly of (Sundressed, A Blackbird En Route, Adult Feelings) with drummer Zak Koehnlien in the Summer/Fall of 2019.
 
Forest having just had his newborn son with his wife Echo (bass) in October of 2019 wrote many songs about the loss of friends, the struggles of COVID, becoming an father, and remaining hopeful/optimistic about the future.
 
10 of these songs culminated into Short Lived’s debut LP titled “Love to Give” which is set to be released June 28th, 2024 with Hidden Home Records
 
Zak Koehnlien moved back home to Kansas City, Missouri in the Summer of 2022, and Zoe Liberman-Martin joined on drums shortly after along with Rob Dinuto (Flowerbeam) on lead guitar.
 
Rob departed Short Lived July of 2023, and eventually Tanner Norquist (Not Nearly) joined on lead guitar to round out the band’s current lineup.
 
Short Lived has played some of these songs live since February of 2020, but this will be the first time the full length LP will be played live in full.
 
Forest and Echo have more songs in the pipeline, and plan on writing, recording, and releasing a Short Lived EP as soon as possible. The married couple also play in the PHX emotional hardcore band Bite the Hand which has been pretty active, so it’s all a work in progress.
 
Thank you all so much for the continued love and support. I am beyond excited to present you with our debut LP “Love to Give."
